Supporting the future of innovation and entrepreneurship in Japan

Startup Guild Japan is a not-for-profit entity functioning like a chamber of commerce for startups. Our mission is to work in parallel with entities in the public and private sectors to bring voice to the startup communities in Japan.


We aim to work with government agencies at all levels to support entrepreneurism through knowledge sharing and representation to make starting a new business seamless and hassle-free, resulting in a growing and prosperous economy.

We're a diverse group of startup owners, visionaries, academics, and influencers that see an exciting future in Japan.

We want to see our communities thrive, prosper, and inspire the next generation of inventors and entrepreneurs. We created the Guild as a hub for the startup community to gather, engage, and work together to grow. We invite stakeholders at all levels of government, academia, and corporates to collaborate with us in improving the business environment for Japanese and foreign startups.

The founding members are a makeup of local and foreign entrepreneurs that call Osaka home.
